f'"-- platform. It is fortunate for the party
-1 '",-5/ -that the distinguished New Yorker
f.^discloses his plans early, although
those who read the platform will ob
-serve that there is a familiar ambi
jfuity about the planks which recalls
the days when democratic* platforms
were made to conceal issues rather
.j than to present them. First, as to
the man. As he has not taken the
public fully into his confidence we
must rely on circumstances to ascer
tain the exact hour when the present
attack of presldental fever first made
its appearance. If the minority bad
secured control of the Chicago con
vention Mr. Hill would doubtless have
been the nominee, for be was the
spokesman of the minority and was
»*'^peculiarly fitted to represent the
methods employed by the gold men on
•'0m that occasion. As is well known Le
^refused to give a single word of en
.couragement to the democratic ticket
•&C- during the campaign and as a result
whatever influence he had was thrown
v.: ''against the party. When the cam
jpaign was over he wrote a carefully
prepared magazine article assailing
,the democratic platform and arguing
in favor of repudiating it. This article
will be reproduced hereafter.

Oiticial Paper of County.
The Candidacy of Mr- Hill.
'-"j"' The speech delivered by ex-Senator
J"*"David B. Hill at the Manhattan club
banquet in New York, February 22,
"jnay be accepted as a formal announce
JsC ment of his candidacy before the next
jfr/1" democratic national convention. He
,%fs
certain that President Roosevelt
will be the republican nominee, and
Roosevelt is a New York man. He is
4.. .also certain that New York will be the
-'battle ground, and the inference is
natural (though not necessary) that
the democratic nominee should come
Alrom New York—and is not Mr. Hill
*v aNew York man?
But in order that his candidacy
might be fairly started on its way he
outlines what he considers a winning
At the time the article was written
'.the reorganises were loudly proclaim
ing their determination to reconstruct
the party along Wall street lines and
Mr. Hill may have been deceived as to
Jv the extent of the gold.sentiment. The
elections of 1897, however, showed the
overwhelming strength of theChicago
'platform democracy, and all talk of
reorganization was for the time aband
oned. It was during this lull that Mr.
-^Hill publically admitted that he voted
•"r the democratic ticket in 1896. It was
BO startling apiece of news that it
5was telegraphed all over the country
|and it has since been reported that
Ihis statement could be proved by a
thumb-mark on the ticket. It is not
necessary, however, to resort to. the
thum b-mark—Pudd 'uhead W illson's
."favorite form of evidence. It can
^readily be admitted that Mr. Hill,
patter doing all he could to defeat the
ticket, voted for the candidates in
order to give him technical member
ship in the party. Whether he had
/fully determined to be a candidate
when he secretly voted the ticket, or
when, after the election, he boidly at
tacked the platform, cannot be de
termined, but no well informed per
son will doubt that he was consider
ing a future nomination when he ad
mitted that in the seclusion of the
booth be had solemnly assumed his
share of the terrible responsibility
borne by those who voted for the nomi
nees of the Chicago convention.
From that day on his energies were
bent, not toward overthrowing the or
ganization, but toward changing the
platform. After nearly all the states
had reaffirmed the Chicago platform
be changed his tactics and sought to
prevent any reiteration of the planks
that were objectionable to him. It
|will be remembered that he at first
^protested agaiDSt'instructions, but fi
nally consented to attend the conven
tion as an instructed delegate. Dur
lng the campaign that followed he
made speeches but their influence can
be measured by the fact that they se
cured neither the votes, the influence
S nor the contributions of those who are
DOW the most enthusiastic in the sup
port of his candidacy.
He is the favorite son of the reorga
nlzfng element in the democrat party,
he is the special representative of
those who have so completely forgoten
the story of the prodigal son that they
would place the parental homestead on
wheels and start in hot pursuit of the
wayward son, determined to compel
ii the boy to eat fatted calf even if the
husks have destroyed his taste for
wholesome food.
But what of HIS PLATFORM? The
following is the abstract given by the
press:
We trace our political lineage back
"to Jefferson, who was the author of
that immortal protest against British
Imperialism known as the Declaration
$ of Independence. Opposition to the
precepts and practices of imperialism
jr was thus one of the cardinal principles
of our party at the very inception of
the government.
We should adhere to the policy in
volved in Jeffersonian expansion, the
reasonable and natural acquirement
of teiritory adjacent to our own.
Whenever the American flag of right
floats tshould be as an emblem of a free
"i government and the aegis of constitu
te tional liberty.
5 Neither should tariff wars nor cus
6 torn# duties obstruct the path of
/y American trade from one portion of
this government to another portion
5 The spectacle is at present presented
of Cuba relieved from Spanish oppres
sion only to be enslaved by the United
States in commercial bondage. Jus
tice demands that these impositions
•nail cease. Nothing butselfinterest
stands in the way of tariff reform for
Cuba.
The democratic party should again
press to the front the issue of revenue
reform. The republican principle or
practice of protection is based upon
the right to use the powers of govern
ment for individual purposes. Our re
publican friends make revenue the in
cident and protection the main pur
pose of all tariff taxation.
The policy of reciprocity is and al
ways has been a democratic policy.
We believe in a strict construction
of the federal constitution as essential
for the public welfare.
We believe in home rule for states.
We favor an amendment to the con
stitution providing for the election of
Uuited States senators by the people.
Opposition to dangerous corporate
combinations of capital should con
tinue to be the democratic position.
The Monroe doctrine, first annuci
ated by a democratic president, should
remain a settled policy of this repub
lic.
We believe In hard money-the mon
ey of the constitution—and are unal
terably opposed to irredeemable paper
currency.
If any further enunciation of demo
cratic policy upon the financial ques
tion is regarded as necessary in view
of the existing monetary conditions,
then it is suggested that a simple dec
laration in favor of the general prin
ciple of bimetallism furnishes a com
mon ground upon which all can Btand.''
He is sound oh imperialism, but the
Kansas City platform is stronger,
clearer and more explicit than his.
His advice to press tariff reform comes
with bad grace from one who as a
democratic senator refused to support
the only tariff reform measure passed
since the civil war. As his silence in
1896 contributed to the success of the
most conspicuous high tariff advocate
in the nation It Is evident that his
hostility to a protective tariff is of
recent and sudden growth. As for
recipfoclty, republicans favor it where
it will do no good, and democrats favor
a tariff reform that will largely remove
the necessity fur reciprocity.
The "strict construction" dectrine
is democratic, but it affords almost as
much latitude for iadividual action
as a piauk declaring that each person
should always do whit he thinks is
right.
It is to be hoped the senate will act
favorably upon the resolutiou propo
sing an amendment to Ihe constitution
providiug for the election of United
States senators by a direct vote of the
people. If it docs this the only defi
nite and specific plauk in Mr. lill't
platform will present an issue already
settled. The Monroe doctrine is not
in dispute it is acceptad by all parties
and Roosevelt's latest message re
moves the question from the domain
of partisan politics. 7
^Opposition to dangerous corporate
combinations of .capital" is entirely
too vague and indefinite. The last re
publican platform was stronger than
that, and yet Mr. Knox is the attorney
general. Mr. Cleveland was much
more emphatic in his condemnation
of trusts and yet he did nothitgto dis
turb them. There is nota great trust
in the country that would refuse to
contribute liberally to the democratic
campaign fund if the party would
adopt Mr. Hill's anti-trust plank and
then allow the trusts to select the
candidate.
The St. Paul Globe—A paper owned
by Mr. J. J. Hill, the head of the
great rail-road combine—has already
published an editorial booming ex-Sen
ator Hill, and the reason given for his
nomination was that he could not be
controlled by the corporations. This
is a fair sample of corruption politics.
What is a "dangerous corporate com
bination?" Is-any party likely to de
clare in favor of such a thing? If not
how can Mr. Hill's platform present
an Issue?
But the money plank of Mr. Hill's
proposed platform is the most unique,
one. •''iVe balieve in hard money."
How alluring such a platform would
look to an artful dodger. A man
could stand on that platform and ad
vocate gold, silver, nickel or copper,
ancLaftcr election declare that "hard
money" simply meantmoney that was
hard to get. While Mr. Hill's money
plauk may mean anything or nothing,
so far as metallic money is concerned
he wants it understood that be is "un
alterably opposed to irredeemable pa
per money." As the republican party
does not advocate "irredeemable pa
per many it is evident thit Mr. Hill
is not slriking at the republicans. lie
is simply trying to get even with' the
populists who supported the democrat
ic ticket when he sulked and skulked,
lie can forgive the gold democrats ho
voted the republican ticket and swal
lowed high tariff, imperialism and the
trusts in order to keep the New York
financiers in control of the federal
treasury, but he is not willing to for
give the populists who were patriotic
enough to come to the rescue of the
democratic party in its hour of need.
Mr. Hill adds that if—IF—anything
further is necessary on the money
question "a simple declaration in fa
vor of the general principle of bimet
alism" would answer the purpose.
The simple declaration would enable
a dishonest man to advocate bimetal
lism before election day and then
after the election, place a republican
construction on the word bimetallism
and support legislation intended to
fasten the gold standard upon the
country. Mr. Hill has no word of
condemnation for the "asset currency
or the "branch bank." He has noth
ing to say aga'inst banks of issue or
against the plan to make the silver
dollar redeemable in gold. He plays
the part of accomplice—he tries to
chloroform the sleeping democracy
while republican financiers remove all
the valuables from the house.
The "simple declaration" which he
proposes must be construed in the
light of the record made by the ifian
who makes the proposition. Mr. Hill's
complete subserviency to the finan
ciers, bis unhesitating obedience to
every demand they have made stamps
A" .W t^v
...
his pretended interest in bimetallism
as hypocritical.
When President Cleveland asked to
have bonds made payable in gold, Mr.
Hill, then senator, went him one bet
ter and introduced a resolution giving
the bondholders the option NOT AT
THAT TIME, BUT WHEN THE BOND BE
CAME DUE. A bond payable in gold
might become cheapened by the in
creased production of gold, but Mr.
Hill's resolution threw all the risk on
the government and relieved the bond
holder of any possible chance of de
preciation. He acted for the bond
holder and acted on the theory of the
man who had some trouble with his
mother-in-law and who, when she died
and he was a9ked whether she should
be buried or cremated, replied: "Do
botb take no chances."
Mr. Hill Is the leader of those who
would make the democratic platform
so nearly like the republican platform
that a democratic victory, even if pos
sible, would mean"nothing to the peo
ple at large.
If this change is to be made it can
not be made at a high-priced banquet
—it must be made by the voters of
the party, and now that the voters
are forewarned it behooves them to
watch their organization and putnone
but the faithful on guard. The rank
and file cannot be corrupted or terri
fied, and they must be relied Don to
keep the party true to the peopled
int-ri st.—Commoner. 7T
FIRM IN HOUR OF DEFEAT.
Britain HnmiUated by the Terrible
Dlaaatetr to Hetbnen But
Mot DUconraeed.
London, March 12.—ExprenmouB of
steadfastness have succeeded those
"sf humiliation which were universal
ly heard here Monday, on the publi
cation of the news of Qen. Methuen'a
disaster. There is little disposition
to minimize the incident, but every
where is heard the determination to
maintain the tradition that b}owp
serve to strengthen and stiffen Brit:
ish resolution. Lord Jtosebery (struck
the popular note Tuesday, in a
speech before the Glasgow students.
He admitted that it was heart-break
ing after all the expenditures of life,
time and money, but, he added:
"It will not dishearten us. We have
got to see this thing through. We
must take the blows which fortune
deals us with equanimity, showing
ourselves worthy of better fortunes."
Beports from the continent that
the defeat of Gen. Methuen was fol
lowed up by another fight, also
favorable to the Boers, occasion
some anxiety, owing to the absence
of news from Gen.^jGrenfeU's column
of 1,300 men, which left Klerkedorp
to join Gen. Methuen. It is thought
that, possibly, Gen. Delarey may havp
attacked Grenfell.
The war secretary, Mr. Brodriek,
when asked, in the house of commons
Tuesday "what steps had been taken,
in view of the success of the Boers
against Gen. Methuen, to send Lord
Kitchener reenforcements, said 0,000
yeomanry would be immediately em
barked with large drafts of cavalry
and infantry. Lord Kitchener
would be given all the assistance he
asked for.
Washington, March 12.—C. H. Wea
sels and A. D. W. Wolmarans, the
Boer delegates in this country, had a
talk with President Boosevelt Tues
day at the conclusion of the cabinet
meeting. They called to pay their
respects and to say good-by, as they
will leave for Europe about the 20th
instant after visiting Chicago and a
number of other places.
In the course of their interview
they stated that they desired to par
ticularly make known to the presi
dent that they neither asked for, de
sired, nor expected intervention on
the part of this country or any other
country.
"A number of mistakes have been print-,
ed about our mission to this country* iinoel
we came to Washington," said Mr. Wei
gels, "and the worst one is that we are try
ing to get intervention. We know that
this is not possible, and as a matter of fact
we don't want It. What we want, however,
and what we have laid before the American
government, Is a request that civilised war
fare be Insured In Bouth Africa. We want
a fair and square fight. We are confident
that we will be able to keep this war going
for a number of years yet, and we think
that all civilized nations, especially th*
United States, are Interested in the proper
rules of warfare being carried out."
Deafness Cunnot Be Oared
by local applications, as they cannot readi
the diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to cure deafness, and that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness ia
caused by an inflamed condition of the mu
cous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When
this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is
entirely closed deafness is the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken out
and this tube restored to its normal con
dition, hearing will be destroyed forever
nine cases of of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condition
of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for any
case of Deafness (caused by catarrh that
cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cur*

House Republicans Hold Another
^.Conference on Reciprocity.
ltl
LONG DEBATE ON CUBAN QUESTION.
Adjournment Taken Until Next Tues
day—Cabinet Ministers Also Dis
cuss the Blatter—The Day
In Congress.
Washington, March J.2.—The fourth
conference of the house republicans
on the reciprocity question was fruit
less, like those that preceded it, the
conference adjourning at midnight un
til next Tuesday. The victory was with
the advocates of reciprocity as the mo
tion to adjourn was carried, 72 to 54,
after a motion to amend the motion to
make it a sine die adjournment, offered
by Mr. Littlefleld, of Maine, "one of
the leaders of the opposition, had been*
voted down, 61 to 79. The motion to
adjourn was made by Speaker Hender
son, and the opponents of reciprocity
claimed after the adjournment that
some of their friends did not care to
offend the speaker by declining to heed
his appeal for a further conference.
Earlier in the evening the opponents
of reciprocity had insisted on a vote
upon the main proposition. The see
don was a stormy one. Mr. Sibley, of
Pennsylvania, offered a compromise
proposition for a reciprocity arrange
ment to last until December 1, 1003,
which he claimed had the approval and
indorsement of President Boosevelt.
He also said he had assurances that
if the house granted a 20 percent, con
cession the senate would not in
crease it.
Cabinet Dlaenaaea Cuba.
Washington, March 12.—The cabinet
discussed at length Tuesday the Phil
ippine legislation, and the necessity for
preserving the "open door" features of
our policy in the Philippines, exactly
as this government expects to have
them preserved in China and through
the east.
The Ciiban tariff situation also vas
discussed. It js understood th^t the ef
fort to secure reciprocity with Cub& fcs
pn administration measure that Pres
ident Roosevelt is carrying it out in
pursuance not merely of the policy, but
of the promise of President McKinley,
and with the most hearty belief in it,
as being morally called for thai thla
administration, like the administra
tion the policy of which it is contin
uing, is pledged to the reliefjof Cuba.
Senate.^
Washington, March 12.—Por several
hours Tuesday the senate hadi the ship
subsidy bill under consideration. Sen
ator Mallory (Fla.) made an extended
speech in opposition to the measure.
He analyzed the bill carefully, and held
that there was no good reason for its
enactment into law, saying he believed
ft would not accomplish the results
hoped for by its promoters. His oppo
sition was based chiefly on the ground
that it would extend the favor of the
United States treasury to private indi
viduals and corporations without a just
return for the expenditure. Prior to
consideration of the subsidiary meas
ure, a lively debate* occurred over an
effort on the part of Senator Berry
(Ark.) to ascertain when the commit
tee on privileges and elections might
be expected to report' tc the senate
the resolution providing for the elec
tion of senators by the direct vote of
the people. Senator Hoar (Mass.) in
dicated his vigorous opposition to such
a resolution on the ground that it
would subvert the fundamental princi
ples upon which the senate .was
founded.
Honae.
Washington, March 12.—The house
Tuesday entered on the consideration
pf the post office appropriation bill,
but as usual during general debate on
an appropriation bill, the members
who spoke, devoted themselves to
everything except the bill before thp
house. Early in the day Mr. Thayer
(Mass.) attempted to take advantage
of the division among the republicans
on the subject of reciprocity by bring
ing forward a resolution to investigate
reports that the sugar trust would be
the chief beneficiary of Cuban recipro
ity. He tried to overturn a (Decision of
the speaker in order to secure action
on his resolution, but the republicans
came up solidly against such a course
and he was checkmated. Mr. Brantley,
a Georgia democrat, made a speech in
favor of Cuban reciprocity, and Mr.
Meyer, a Louisiana democrat, one
against it. Mr. Hill (Conn) made some
remarks on his monetary bill. The
fenture of the day, however, was a
speech by Mr. Burleson attacking Sec
retary Hay for declining to request
the Britishauthoritiea to filing pass
ports to go through the British lines
to Rev. Hiram W. Thomas and wife,
who desire to go to
South Africa to dip-
tribute Boer relief funds collected In
Illinois. Mr. Hitt (111.), chairman of
the foreign affairs committee, made a
spirited reply to Mr. Burleson, charg
ing the Texas member with attempt
ing to prejudice the case before the
evidence wa6 in. Mr. Hitt pointed out
that relief funds could be distributed
through the Bed Cross or the Ameri
can consuls, and added that it was con
trary to international law and usage
to allow those in sympathy with the
enemy to go through the lines in time
of war.
Pensioned at Agre of 108.
Washington, March 12.—The presi
dent has approved the bill graattng
tin increased pension to Iliram Cronk,
pf Ava, Oneida county, N. y., who is
the last surviving soldier pensioner of
the war oi 1812. He is now 102 years
old.
Vetoed.
Washington, March 12.—President
Boosevelt Tuesday sent his first veto
message to congress. It was directed
to the senate, and the bill vetoed was
one removing the cliareg of desertion
from the naval record of John Glass.
Exonerated.
Battle Creek, Mich., March 12.—The
coroner's inquest on the death of Ab

tarium fire of February 18, exonerated
the sanitarium management from

New York, March 12.—rrince Henry
of Prussia sailed for Germany on
board the Hamburg-American liner
Deutschland Tuesday afternoon. His
last day in America wns spent entirely
on board the Deutschland, but it was
well filled with pleasing incidents. The
prince breakfasted early and about ten
o'clock began to receive official fare
well visits, including representatives
of Germany in this country and those
of the United StateB government.
Mayor Low, of New York, was also a
caller and the prince in bidding him
farewell, gave a hint that he had some
intftvtion of returning to America for
a second visit.
The members of the party that ac
companied the prince on his tour were
his guests at luncheon. Covers were
laid for 28 persons in the dining-rooiq
of the steamship and music wa^ fur?
nished by the band from the II oh en'
zollern. At the close of the luncheon
when it came time to say good-by the
prince, taking a rose from the table,
said: "This is the badge of that which
1 have been admiring during my entire
trip to the United States—American
beauty." He placed the flower in his
buttonhole and each guest followed
his example.
Immediately after the luncheon at
the prince's invitation the party went
to the commander's bridge of the
Deutschland and was there photo
graphed. Then the real leave-taking
began.
An Incident of the forenoon was the
call, of the committee of 40 New Yor^c
letter carriers, representing the Ne^y
York branch of the National Letter
Carriers' association. They came to
present the prince with a bronze tab*
let, in commemoration of the martyred
presidents of tjie United States, Lin
coln, Garfield nnd McKinley. The let
ter carriers failed to see the prince,
and were received by Admiral von 8ee
kendorff in his behalf.
The Deutschland sailed at 3:45.
As she moTed away from the pier the
cheering was continuous. The prince
appeared on the bridge and bowed. All
down North river the pn rising tugs nnd
craft of every description gave the
great liner and her distinguished pas
senger a noisy send-off. At the Bat
tery, which was reached exactly at
four o'clock, a great crowd had gath
ered and cheered as the vessel steamed
on down the bay. The Deutschland
reached the Xnrrows at 4:35. Po^t
Waflsworth and Hamilton fired salutes,
which were answered by the Deutsche
land's whistle, and the garrison at
Port Wadsworth lined up on the bluff
until the steamer had passed out into
the lower bay. The Deutschland is due
nt Hamburg on Monday next.
The imperial yacht Hohenzollern
started on her homeward trip at 2:40
o'clock Tuesday. A crowd witnessed
the departure of the 6hip at her pier,
and a clieer from the people wo® an*
swered with a-salute by whistle from
the Hohenzollern.
